Re: In Dash Rattle

I tried the parking brake handle/button but am sorry to say that pressing or holding it didn't help the rattle go away.

Re: In Dash Rattle

I hope this can help some of you guys out...

I found that the headlight pull switch vibrates and causes a rattle.

I get a squeek in the dash once in a while when I go over bumps... Any ideas?

Re: In Dash Rattle

Sorry for the ignorant question but where exactly does the tape go in the AC vents to stop the rattle. I've had the rattle since day one and it's driving me nuts. I"d rather fix it myself than have the grease monkeys at the dealership work on it and scuff up my interior and dirty my carpets.

I put the tape around the frame of the trim ring on the back side between the clips that hold it in. If your rattle is from the AC vents you might have a different problem but if you can push on the trim ring and make the noise stop then the tape should help.

I also switched from the tape to 1/4" foam windows stripping (home depot/lowes) as the tape will not stick in cold weather and can become a source of squeeking itself. If you use the foam you might need to double up to get the pressure needed to hold the trim ring tight to the dash. Most squeeks in this area are caused by the plastic rubbing against the dash.

My car is in the shop for this right now...among other things. They say they'll get to the dash rattle tomorrow. Today they replaced the radio (the cd player would stop working sometimes and the speed sensing sound would get screwy) and sometime in the next few days it's going to the body shop to get a spot weld repaired that broke loose in the rear of the car somewhere (bad popping sound when you hit a bump or what-not).

Luckily, my buddy is out of town for a while and he's letting me drive his 2000 Lightning for a "rental" car. It's a bad *** truck...maybe I won't give it back?

Re: In Dash Rattle

I had "the rattle", but since I took the CDs out of the changer they're gone.
Was talking with a freind of mine that also happens to have been my salesman for the Mach, he told me it's common enough, Ford will replace the Stereo if I want under warrenty, but eventually the rattle (cused by the CDs in the changer) will come back.
So I'm living the old fashoned way...., putting the CDs in one at a time and playing them that way.

yup! my shifter does that to! No biggy though.

That's what I have! Did the tape work? It always stops when I push on the center console just below the a/c vents but starts back up when I let off. I guess I can live with it. I'll just turn up the music louder!

Re: In Dash Rattle

Baby oil + Queue Tip + Squeak = Silence.... That is of course if you can find the squeak(the rubbing plastic type) and it is in a place where you can oil it. Haven't done it in my Mach yet since I just got it, but I have successfully removed squeaks for extended periods of time on other vehicles using baby oil.

Re: In Dash Rattle

ok, so I have the dash rattle; it's definetly coming from the trim ring around the radio and a/c, cause it stops when I press on it...

anyone have any pics on how to remove the trim to fix it or where to pull from? I really don't want to break anything....

Here is the steps I use to remove the trim ring around the radio and shifter.

Remove the trim ring around the shifter first as it will make it easer to remove the one around the radio. Start by pulling strait up on the trim ring but try and keep equal pressure as you don't want to brake anything. You don't have to remove it from the shifter just turn it sideways so that you can pull the trim ring around the radio off.

For the radio trim ring I start my removing the a/c vents first. Tilt the vents up or down and just pull them out. You will hear a snap and the vents will come out. I start from the bottom of the trim and use a small screw driver covered with a thin rag to help pop the first corner out so I can get my fingers around it. Work both sides going up at the same time. Once you get to the top, you will have two small clips behind the a/c vents that need to be pushed down some with a small screw driver. Work one side and then the other. Once you have one side free, you will need to keep presure so it does not snap back in place while your working on the other side. The trim ring should now be free and ready to pull out. If you are removing it from the car don't forget to unplug your t/c, driving lights, and defrost.

Re: In Dash Rattle

Mach1, It's been so long that I don't remember at what RPM the rattling would start, but I would say around 2200rpms. I would try the fix that I posted and see if that helps.

I have raised the shaker and the sound is the same as when it was new.
I have the exact same noise. It sounds like its in the defrost area on mine. I'll pinpoint it today and report back. I've only driven the car three times.
